Building Envelope Evaluation

Prior to a property real estate transaction, the prospective investors were initially concerned about the general condition of the exterior stucco wall finish at a three-story apartment building complex. Our engineers were hired to perform the expedited visual inspection and an infrared survey of the apartment complex to evaluate the potential for water infiltration through the stucco exterior finishes. To address the client’s concerns, management was initially interviewed for known ongoing conditions, as well as to establish a complete history of water intrusion events and remedial efforts. From this information, a detailed non-destructive examination of the exterior stucco and select windows was performed for evidence of water infiltration. An infrared camera and moisture meter were employed to supplement the visual examination at areas exhibiting openings, distress or deterioration in the stucco finish and adjoining the windows. In order to meet the timeline of the real estate transaction, the client’s lender also requested our engineers to conduct an expedited structural engineering assessment of the multi-story parking garages. Results for both the exterior wall evaluation and the structural assessment were provided verbally within 24 hours to meet the client’s needs and allow the transaction to proceed successfully.

Our team delivered cost-effective, accurate engineering information necessary to meet the specific needs of the client and his lender. Minor deficiencies in the exterior walls and parking structures were identified, which easily enabled the client and lender to make sound business decisions about the property.
